Three for Thursday! – The Shrinking Jeans of Heather


January 21, 2010 By heather

CE asked about three things that motivate us while working out…here are mine!


1. I have to copy CE here…music. I can’t run on the treadmill without it. No way. My favorites on my Ipod this week?

  • Little Secrets by Passion Pit
  • Tik Tok by Ke$ha
  • Anything by Paramore. I’m slightly obsessed.

2. Sweating. As in clothes drenched, no way you’re rewearing that track jacket sweating. I don’t feel like I’ve had a good workout unless I’m soaking wet.

3.  Cute (and effective) workout clothes/shoes. Now that I’m running more, I’m finding that quality gear is a must! Gone are the days that I can go out and run in my old yoga pants. They fall down – which is totally obnoxious. And, even though I’ve weaned my kiddo (yippee/sob) and my girls have gone back down to a normal size, I still require a structurally sound sports bra. What I’m loving right now?

  • My new sports bra from lululemon. It’s called the Ta-Ta Tamer. IT. IS. INCREDIBLE. Totally supportive, yet it lifts and separates the girls. Woot!
  • My Nike Dri Fit running gear. I’ve got the pants, the long sleeve t-shirt and the jacket. Love love love them. LOVE. I’m always the right temperature and my pants do not fall down. Bliss.
  • My Puma running shoes. Yeah, Puma…I’ve always been a Nike or Adidas girl, but I’m on my second pair of Puma Voltaic tennies – and I adore them. They are super de duper light, don’t hurt my feet (yay), totally cute, and reasonably priced.

That’s three for me! What keeps YOU motivated?
